Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Musca domestica and Chrysomya putoria gave topical NOEC values of 4.2 and 1.5 μg/insect respectively. For malathion resistant strains the NOEC values were increased by two times or more.
Executive summary:

Musca domestica and Chrysomya putoria gave topical NOEC values of 4.2 and 1.5 μg/insect respectively. For malathion resistant strains the NOEC values were increased by two times or more.
